I have never really looked deeply at the cost breakdowns for a coaster but 11 million seems like a lot considering it doesn’t include the physical coaster or the installation.

California is probably the outlier in "normal" construction costs, given all the extra hoops parks have to jump through to even think about building something.

That doesn't sound too crazy to me, especially since it includes the cost of the station which alone is likely around $3-5 million. That cost likely includes all the theming in and around the station which certainly isn't cheap either.

Yukon Striker may or may not have been $25M. It's not hard to imagine that almost half is beyond the steel/installation itself.

Same thing happening in Tampa with RMC and Iron Gwazi construction.


The trick was to surrender to the flow.

Parks trying to preserve cash. Contractors protecting their interests. A lot of that happening in just about every industry.
